Bobby Bowden is gone — but FSU is making sure he’s never forgotten, honoring the legendary football coach with a helmet sticker, field logos and much more this season.
The Seminoles announced the tributes Wednesday … revealing Bowden’s signature will be on the back of every player’s helmet, while a patch will adorn the sleeve of every coach’s shirt.
The team also said it will paint Bowden logos on its field … and hang a Bowden banner in its stadium’s south end zone.
The Noles explained the logo is a combo of the hat Bowden famously wore during his coaching career coupled with a “Bobby” signature.
As we previously reported, Bowden — one of the greatest college football coaches ever — died after a battle with pancreatic cancer last month. He was 91 years old.
Bobby was such a big deal at the school and across the state, he received a public tribute days after his death … with a Lie In Honor at the Florida State Capitol.
Bowden earned more than 350 victories during his coaching career … and won the 1993 and 1999 National Championships.
The Noles, meanwhile, kick off their season on Sunday against Notre Dame in Tallahassee.
